Los Angeles-born Paul Revere Williams was one of the country’s greatest architects. His career spanned almost 60 years, and his versatile buildings can be found across Los Angeles County. He was also a remarkable trailblazer. As a Black man in the field of architecture, he persevered in the face of racism to achieve remarkable success.
To better understand the breadth of Williams’ work and accomplishments, the Los Angeles Conservancy and Southern California Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects are pleased to take you on a county-wide expedition celebrating the life, work, and legacy of L.A.'s legendary architect Paul Revere Williams.
